The following natural processes are involved in the purification (or possibly, pollution) of the kosas of all beings wether or not they are doing sadhana.
When energy is being cleared, physically, emotionally, or psychically, there are various symptoms that may arise. These include physical tension or pain, trembling of muscles, chills or fevers, digestive upsets, coughing, yawning, laughter, crying, etc. For instance in Reiki practice the appearance of a "reaction" or symptoms is taken as a positive sign that the body is accepting the treatment and is beginning to clear of toxins.
